Summer Concerts 2018
The KAO has had a busy summer season starting with a very successful "Night at the Movies" concert at Chilton Foliat in May.
May also saw the KAO performing on the Bandstand in the lovely Victoria Park in Newbury for the second year running. The audience enjoyed two hours of musical entertainment in glorious sunshine.
The Orchestra travelled to Minehead in June for a weekend of family fun and music. Joined by friends of the Orchestra, they enjoyed playing in the Bandstand at Blenheim Gardens.
On a really hot day in July the KAO and the Dorset Accordion Orchestra played at St. Ives Village Hall, near Ringwood. This event was to raise funds towards the purchase of a new wheelchair for the son of one of the players in the DAO. It was a very successful and enjoyable occasion and raised nearly £700.
Thank you to our friends in the DAO for making us so welcome.
In August we were invited to play at The Glebe in Stockcross for the annual 'Stockfest'.
This was a successful afternoon of Musical Entertainment and KAO may be back for an evening concert in the future.
After the success of the Chilton Foliat Concert in May we have been asked to return to the Village Hall for our annual Advent Concert. This is due to take place on Friday 7th December at 7.30 pm. Tickets will be £7.50 and will be available soon.
